    Unfortunately, it suffers from the same shortcomings as virtually all yellows - the blooms are fewer in number, and are usually found toward the end of the inflorescence, and they fade after opening. A well shaped yellow should be crossed with the yellow variant of Phal. stuartiana (which doesn't lose its color with age) to see the a non-fading yellow can be achieved.

    It's a beautiful bloom. I didn't know that yellows had this issue. I noticed my yellows have a faster bloom and fall rate but didn't know it was a thing. I was partial to purple phals when I first started out but lately the yellows have my attention.

    Nice! I got a dark NOID yellow mini with finished blooms April 4th. It had a new spike just starting and that bloomed at the beginning of May. Only three flowers but still open and looking fresh.

    I really admire the almost round shape of the bloom on this Phal Hsin Timothy. I also like the soft yellow color. Beautiful!

    cheers,

    I have yellow Phalaenopsis Fuller's Sunset which I do realize that the flower count is low but the colour did not fade until the day it started to wilt. I think this particular hybrid is soft yellow most probably due to the influence of parent colour which is white (Phalaenopsis Timothy Christopher).

    Just like a blonde hair children may develop darker hair colour when they grow up (it is just an analogy though), not sure if there is scientific explanation to this. But I think it has to be associated with the attribution of ancestry genetic which responsible for pigments (maybe?).
